Attorney for Oath Keepers militia is indicted on conspiracy charge related to Jan 6

A Texas attorney has been arrested and charged this Thursday for her alleged participation in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, CBS News reports.

Kellye SoRelle, 43, has been incited for witness tampering and conspiracy. As CBS News points out, she herself confirmed that she acted at the president for the Oath Keepers militia when its leader Stewart Rhodes was arrested and charged with seditious conspiracy and other charges related to Jan. 6.

From CBS News:

According to the indictment, between December 2020 and January 2021, SoRelle attempted to “corruptly obstruct, influence, and impede” Congress from certifying the 2020 election and “did aid and abet others known and unknown to the Grand Jury to do the same.” SoRelle, according to the charging documents, planned to impede the peaceful transfer of power.

She is accused of unlawfully entering the U.S. Capitol complex on Jan. 6, as well as tampering with documents when she allegedly tried to persuade people to “withhold records, documents and other objects” from the Grand Jury tasked with investigating the Jan. 6 riot.

SoRelle also sought to “alter, destroy, mutilate, and conceal objects with intent to impair the objects’ integrity and availability for use in such a Grand Jury investigation,” the charging documents said.

SoRelle was present in a Washington, D.C., parking garage where Rhodes and Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio met one day before the Capitol riot. The meeting was documented in a documentary and the footage was featured in one of the House January 6 Committee’s hearings earlier this year.
